The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Been Released As Steelbook

LOTR-BD-SteelbookThe Precious is returning as Warner Home Video is set  release the Blu-ray extended edition of Peter Jackson’s visual masterpiece The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ™ as a Steelbook for the first time in the UK. Following December’s number 1 box office theatrical release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the Five-Disc Blu-ray Steelbook will debut March 24, with The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ™ also re-released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 3.

In this first part of the Trilogy, the young hobbit Frodo Baggins inherits a ring; but this ring is no mere trinket. It is the One Ring, an instrument of absolute power that could allow Sauron, the dark Lord of Mordor, to rule Middle-earth and enslave its peoples. Frodo, together with a Fellowship that includes his loyal hobbit friends, humans, a wizard, a dwarf and an elf, must take the One Ring across Middle-earth to Mount Doom, where it first was forged, and destroy it forever. Such a journey means venturing deep into territory manned by Sauron, where he is amassing his army of Orcs. And it is not only external evils that the Fellowship must combat, but also internal dissension and the corrupting influence of the One Ring itself. The course of future history is entwined with the fate of the Fellowship.

One of the most magical, intensely spectacular epic adventures in motion picture history comes alive when this extended edition and now the film is coming on  Blu-ray Disc you enjoy  The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring unsurpassed high definition picture and sound.

The Extended Edition Blu-ray  the single set boasts nearly nine hours of additional content, highlighted by the rare behind-the-scenes documentaries created by Costa Botes, the filmmaker given unprecedented access to the set of each production by Peter Jackson. Costa Botes was able to capture raw and riveting behind-the-scenes film footage. His unique approach to storytelling – allowing the footage to speak for itself – results in an intimate and candid backstage pass to the challenges, preparations and camaraderie that went into shooting one of the greatest cinematic adventures of all time. The feature-length documentary focuses on a number of complexities and circumstances that tested the filmmakers, cast and crew during the shoot, as well as a look at some of the comical antics and personal moments on the set. The Costa Botes documentary accompanies acclaimed special features by Michael Pellerin from the original extended cut release to make this the most comprehensive The Lord of the Rings compilation ever.
